President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of the National Assembly have called upon to abolish the Big Brother Naija reality show.
The call was made by Civil Liberties Organization (CLO) on Wednesday, October 9, who claimed that the show destroys the moral values of the society especially for Nigerians.
Vincent Ezekwueme, the Anambra state chapter of CLO, called on the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, to investigate if the show has any positive and moral impact on the lives of Nigerian youths, The Nation reports.
Ezekwueme said: “The show has painful, shameful, negative and devastating impact on our youths, culture and society. Wealth without wisdom is one of the worst blunders of the world.
“The minister for information and culture should constitute men of impeccable integrity to unravel if the show is in tandem with culture, traditions and believe of Nigeria in order to restore morality, core value system and good orientation.”
